Daily COVID-19 update for Peterborough and the greater Kawarthas region - July 22, 2020

kawarthaNOW is providing a daily report of COVID-19 cases in the greater Kawarthas region as well as in Ontario.

Today, the Ontario government is reporting 165 new cases, 40 fewer than yesterday’s report but still trending upwards compared to earlier in July.

There are 2 new cases to report in the greater Kawarthas region: 1 in Kawartha Lakes and 1 in Haliburton.

Peterborough Public Health is reporting no new cases for the 32nd day in a row. There are no new cases in Northumberland, and 1 additional case has been resolved in Halliburton. There have been no new cases in Hastings and Prince Edward counties since May 18, and 1 additional case there has been resolved.

Since the pandemic began, there have been 95 confirmed positive cases in the Peterborough area (93 resolved with 2 deaths), 174 in the City of Kawartha Lakes (151 are resolved), 25 in Northumberland County (23 resolved), 12 in Haliburton County (11 resolved), and 43 in Hastings County and Prince Edward County (38 resolved).

There has been a total of 39 deaths in the greater Kawarthas region since the pandemic began, with 32 of these deaths in Kawartha Lakes. The most recent death was reported on May 7 by Hastings Prince Edward Public Health.

Province-wide, there have been 38,107 confirmed cases, an increase of 175 from yesterday’s report, with 33,812 (88.7% of all cases) resolved, an increase of 207. There have been 2,755 deaths, an increase of 2 from yesterday.

The province is also reporting 1,788 of residents in long-term care homes, an increase of 56 from yesterday. This significant increase, which exceeds yesterday’s number of total deaths, is unexplained. However, the average number of deaths in long-term care homes has averaged 1 to 3 per day over the past month, so this may be a data error or an adjustment to account for previously unreported deaths.

A total of 1,934,099 tests have been completed, an increase of 23,990 from yesterday, with 18,881 tests under investigation, an increase of 7,039.

This report is based on data supplied by the province’s integrated Public Health Information System (iPHIS), as well as any additional information supplied by health units and hospitals. This information is at least 24 hours old, so it is not real-time data.

We publish the daily report, usually by late afternoon, with the most current information released by health units. Note that each health unit reports the information in a different way.
